Managed to get a few of this little beauty before the heavens opened this P.M… I believe it to be a female i.e its crest not as vivid as my previous pix ( of same down the rock park) There certainly is a wealth of these birds this year I have never heard or seen so many…This reflected in Paul’s ringing and sighting in Nant Glas area…. there were three Tinkling away in the yew tree near the lake cafe always a joy to hear. Earlier in the day two sparrow hawks one near the golf links cairn, loads of mippits and skylarks about there…also one up the Rhogo where a flock of linnet C 100 ground feeding with mippits and a few Goldfinch. Several kites and buzzard…only managed to spot one pair of stonechats…..looks like the wheatears have gone. Oh yes I nearly forgot Pigs don’t Fly but they can fish….Nice to meet you again Jane from Evenjobb….Reiterating on your sighting of at least C. thousand House Martin filling up shoulder to shoulder two span of telephone wire in the village… Ready for the off.
